Cannot find any country with those characteristics, maybe you mistook something.

Indeed, it is in the UK.
And yes, in the UK motorways with an A prefix do exist.

Resuming:



It is in the UK.
A nearby motorway has a number with the prefix A.
It's absolutely not near a border. However, there have been borderlike facilities some yards away from this place, until appr. 17 years ago...


Edit: no, it is not in Ulster.

It seems very similar to some points of that motorway but not exact site.

Some more clues?
